Just the place to relax and chill!

Witbank, South Africa

First of all: the staff. It started when we arrived and were seated and told about the hotel, it's amenities and what they offer, with a cold drink in our hands. Throughout our stay, the staff were very attentive and just about all requests were met with that 'can do' attitude. Then the rooms. Very spacious, kept meticulously clean, with a second change of towels in the evening. It also had a small, but very usable balcony. We could see a nice bit of ocean from it as well. General: the pool really looked like the pictures you will see and is right on the beach. You can exchange your swimming towels (supplied by the hotel) every day. and the view over the ocean and Le Morne was spectacular. The dining room looks out over the pool and you have this amazing views every day. We even saw all the boats following the dolphins on a few days. By walking just a bit to the north on the beach, you will be able to witness some really spectacular sunsets (why does the sun seem to set in the wrong direction when at the hotel?) Food: Great breakfast spread with about six types to choose from, so you can literally have six different breakfasts on consecutive days. We ate just about everything every day and really enjoyed it. Dinner has a different theme every evening ( seems to be repeated every week), which we also enjoyed, but it was not 'wow'. Location: right at the end of the road from Flic en Flac, so it was very quiet, no loud noises. Quite a few upmarket hotels sharing the road. Tried snorkelling from the beach, nothing to see, but you can take a free trip with their boat to the reef. We enjoyed our six days there so much, that we did not do any activities that we planned for, but spend just about every day relaxing next to the pool or on the beach. Please take some aquatic shoes along, as the dead coral can cut your feet. I would give this hotel a 9/10, and we would really like to return there if we get the opportunity.

Very restful and good standard.

My girlfriend & I had a 10 day holiday at Sands and were very impressed. The hotel is at the end of a bay and the views of the mountains and sea are beautiful. The resort is so special because it was not too big and meant there was always somewhere to sit, a bed by the beach or by the pool, or in bar & restaurant, no hassel trying to reserve something. The boathouse offers many icluded extras, Stand up paddles, Canoes, Water ski-ing, Wind surfing, Pedalos, glass bottom boat trip, snorkling etc. The beach is very clean and quiet, as the whole resort itself. On departure day they offer a great service at no charge, so that you can store luggage, enjoy your last hours and then use a shower and changing room to get ready. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are really big & airy with great bathrooms and balconies all overlooking the sea. The pool is really nice and the dining areas & bar are all open so you can wine, dine and relax always being by the sea. Taxi’s arrive very quickly and in 10 minutes you can be at the local shops and bars in flic en flac. This hotel offers a peaceful and comfortable rest, with different bands every night,but if you are looking for nightlife and lots of bars this means you will need a taxi to one of the villages.There are a lot of honeymooners here, as all over the island, but we still found company and enjoyed our stay very much. I would highly recommend this hotel for its standards, cleanliness and staff. The food buffets, which varied each night, meant that you were able to choose exactly what you would like to eat and as much as you wanted,so there were no set menues in the inclusive price which was quite exceptional. Be prepared for a large majority of dishes to be Creole & Asian influenced, although there was a permanent Italian corner with pizzas & pastas. We had a good day trip on a catamaran watching & swimming with the dolphins and also the curious corner was fun, a good afternoon that is also great for kids. All in all a really nice holiday.
